I found this project while surfing around some Flickr groups. I really like all the details in the scene and statue with the hollow base is really great. I like the fact that the vegetation screams "island" but he did not overdo it and it looks really natural.

Nice find.  

I like the dark gray statue (and its base) and the water.  Some nice detailing, like the little birds as well.

I look forward to your blog.

A great find indeed. I've seen many of Pirate MOC's in my days and even a few statues, but for me the best part is the cave. It seems so simple but it just looks so natural and it fits the scene.

Hopefully this user joins.

Looks like it was inspired by the 2004 TV series LOST. Very interesting though- nice find!

Great find darkdragon!

I really love the way he added so many details, yet balanced everything out so as not too make it look too messy!

I really hope the builder joins, as he's got some mad skills.

Pretty cool scene!

I particularly like the second photo with zoom in the treasure cave under the statue. Nice feature.
